The way to quickly benefit from Chinese Astrology is to remember that the greater degree of harmony, Yin-Yang that can be created in any situation – the greater degree of favorable fate, happiness and prosperity will come your way.
This means that you are aware of the position that will potentially bring the greatest progress, happiness, prosperity and luck to your Chinese animal. However, because this optimal position is assumed to be volatile in nature, it can be difficult to predict, let alone consciously and purposefully achieve and maintain.
Your navigation towards the optimal position is thus something that should often have your attention. The course must be continuously adjusted. The mindset of constantly striving towards the optimal state of harmony is a way of life.
To judge which action will take you in the direction of the optimal state of harmony, you get help from the Chinese animals.
You know your own Chinese animal and remember the two animals with which you are most in harmony, as well as the two animals with which you are least compatible.

And then it’s about being aware of and promoting the presence of these people in your life.
